Fifteen Ruscha Readers and a Pint of Bitter (please)

I stumbled across a great collection of Ed Ruscha’s books at Coventry University earlier this week and considered it an opportunity for a whole ‘Evening with Ed‘ with the Photobook Club Coventry. This in turn seemed a good opportunity for a cheeky homage to the great man, and so here is the Phtoobook Club’s ‘Fifteen Ruscha Readers and a Pint of Bitter (please)‘ as a free downloadable PDF…

…and if you would like to see these books or have them visit you, let me know (more info inside)

Coming up on the Photo Book Club…

After a break over Christmas the Photo Book Club will be resuming normal service in February. There will also be a Meet-up in Coventry which I shall be running as part of the open photography class #picbod, and so if anyone is interested in attending and is in the West Midlands area, pop me an email.

And so to the first few books we will be looking at in 2012; we start with Stephen Shore’s ‘Uncommon Places’, followed by Sally Mann’s ‘Immediate Family’. Two classic American photobooks and two that I am sure will lead to some interesting discussion.
– If you would like to write a personal reflection on either of these books, or suggest what we might look at in April, you can do so in the comments below, or via email.
